Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 days ago):

  • Doctor seems to think I have epididymitis due to a swollen testicle and constant pain in testicle. He gave me doxycycline for 23 days. I'm only half way through but was in a lot of pain so started to take naproxen which seemed to work instantly. However since I've been taking the naproxen (orally) I have been experiencing about half a tea spoon of blood on my toilet paper, and a stinging while I'm going for a poo.
